Content Notes: This attempts to be a recruiter vid but spoilers are inevitable. Fast cuts and flashing lights, speed changes. US network television-type violence. Some violence against African-American slaves is shown but that is not the primary topic. Animal harm. Feel free to ask specific questions about content.

This was fantastic. I love the choice to use the Lemonade version of Freedom - you used the quieter beginning in that to great effect.

This was powerful, and as others have said, makes me determined to see the show! It was especially fitting given that we were imagining a vid of this very source to this very song at the WisCon vidding workshop...

By a strange coincidence, I watched both Underground and Lemonade over the weekend. This vid does great justice to both.

I just finished the show and then immediately watched this vid twice in a row - it's 100% perfect.

Fuck. Yes. Beautiful set up of the characters and I really love how the quieter bits within the song were edited too, like the kiss. Knowing the source, I really appreciate the use of writing and using the stars to figure out the map. OMGYES bulletproof using Rosalee and Ernestine. And I love the section of Cato and Ernestine because of the cast, they were the two with motives and reasoning not outright revealed to the viewer. Not the way Noah wanted to run and was transparent about that. Excellent use of the superhero angle shot as Rosalee comes out. So good.

Huh, I liked that, in that it left me wanting to watch it again so that I could appreciate it more. I mean, I watch so very little TV that realistically, I'm not going to watch the actual show, but I do want to watch the vid again. :)
